Lisa Foster – Studio Visit

The past few months I have been laying low in Western Massachusetts. During this stay, I had the opportunity to visit the studio of a very talented artist who lives in the area. Huge thanks to Lisa Foster for her hospitality and for letting me run around her awesome studio space with a camera.

Lisa has been making fantastic paintings for years but has only recently began to actively share her creations outside of her close circle. Showing work through her website and social media outlets has flourished in immediate and growing attention for more.

Her life sized, mixed media, self portraits known as “Lisa Shapes” command complete attention when encountered. It is a sensation that could be likened to a meeting as much as a viewing. Foster has been through a lot in her life. Some traumatic experiences had left her “in pieces.” Her work, the process and product, have been helping her to feel whole again. The genuine nature of this approach has been manifesting very powerful results.

The large canvases are accomplished with acrylic paint, medium and reproduction quilting fabrics. It’s easy to keep up with the production of her new work online. In addition to that, I encourage you to see the pieces in person. It is a real treat that offers new insight. I hope that you enjoy this studio visit as much as I did.

    I am getting all fired-up about that purple painting. Also, the black painting right next to it is mighty fine as well. These definitely did merit an in-person visit: just the mood of them would be so real. Thanks for posting!
